home for the weekend. the break comes with 26 days to go until the fiscal cliff deadline and after president obama and house speaker john boehner spoke again by phone but failed to reach a deal. boehner says revenues can be on the table just not in the form of tax hikes on the rich. treasury secretary timothy geithner says that just won't work. >> there's no point to an agreement that involve the rates going up on the top 2% of the wealthy. it's only 2%. >> geithner went on to say that he's fully prepared. the obama administration is fully prepared to go off that fiscal cliff if republicans don't agree to tax hikes on the wealthiest americans. let's bring in congressional correspondent kate bolduan. the white house won't budge on taxes. the republican led house takes a break. can you make sense of this for us? >> i think that's a little above any of our pay grade trying to make sense of it all other than it seems that it's one more fight that we've seen over and over again and we are seeing once again it play out almost as it appears slow motion, carol. you mention the call between
